Daniel Gomes' residency at the LEC
During March 2015, Daniel Gomes, young Portuguese composer specialized in sonic arts, is realizing a residency at Miso Music Portugal's Lab for Electroacoustic Creation (LEC), where he is working on his new project Invergent Flex, for alloy.
Daniel Gomes studied sound at the ETIC, Escola Técnica de Imagem e Comunicação (Lisbon), and then in Madrid where he received a diploma in audio engineering at the SAE Institute. In 2009 he realized the sonology course at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague, having studied electronic music composition with Kees Tazelaar. In 2012 he made the master's degree in sonic arts at the Sonic Arts Research Centre at the Queen's University College in Belfast, under the direction of Eric Lyon. He has worked in sound design and as sound technician in theatre, cinema and within diverse events.
His work encompasses the field of computer music and composition. He realized and developed performances using the sound as s mean for composition and the computer as a composition tool, where this work's important part involves sound synthesis in real time and spatialization. In 2010 his work Resultado Branco was chosen for the Black & White festival in the category of experimental audio, and in 2013 he made part of the group of young composers within the Banc D’essay of Groupe de Recherche Musicales in Paris.
Invergent Flex, for alloy is a project by Daniel Gomes whose concept is based on the exploration of typically non-resonant objects.
